4.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
------------------ From: Jia-Ju Bai <baijiaju1...@gmail.com> commit c7b8f77872c73f69a16528a9eb87afefcccdc18b upstream. According to drivers/usb/serial/io_edgeport.c, the driver may sleep under a spinlock. The function call path is: edge_bulk_in_callback (acquire the spinlock) process_rcvd_data process_rcvd_status change_port_settings send_iosp_ext_cmd write_cmd_usb usb_kill_urb --> may sleep To fix it, the redundant usb_kill_urb() is removed from the error path after usb_submit_urb() fails. This possible bug is found by my static analysis tool (DSAC) and checked by my code review.
